As of early September, the number of new students enrolling at Maharishi University of Management increased by an estimated 70 percent compared to a year ago. 

This includes 250 Maharishi University of Management students enrolled at the University's collaborating institution in Beijing, China: Capital University of Economics and Business. 

Apart from the enrollment in China, the numbers also look good, with 174 new students enrolling at the Fairfield campus. This represents a 20 percent increase compared to a year ago. A majority of the new students on campus are enrolled in graduate programs. The Computer Professionals Program continues to attract students, with 52 new arrivals this fall. Also, two new co-op programs for professionals—in accounting and education—will enroll a group of students in October. 

Most of the 57 new undergraduate students are from the US, with a third of those learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique upon arrival or shortly before coming. 

As usual, the student body is extremely diverse, with students coming from 62 countries: Algeria, Angola, Cameroon, Comoros Islands, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Spain and the Canary Islands, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Poland, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Moldava, Romania, Serbia, Turkey, Israel, and Jordan. Also, Iran, Armenia, Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Georgia, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, Mongolia, China, Taiwan (China), Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Cambodia, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Venezuela, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The largest contingent of students enrolled at the Fairfield campus comes from the United States, with 167, followed by Ethiopia, with 137.
